“I grew up on the Northern Beaches and did my whole apprenticeship. I went to TAFE and did my certificate III & IV [in plumbing] but uhhh TAFE sort of stuffed me around and um you know I did all my exams failed one, and had to go back and do it again; and then I passed it but they didn’t put it back into the system. This is like 6 years ago. And like I went back to them and said bugger that I’m not going to go through all that trouble, so that’s when I came to Qualify Me!
Its been pretty good.
“As soon as I called up Ray, he sent me all the details and I came in a week later with my transcripts and all that and handed it in. A few weeks later I had a competency conversation and that’s it.
Oh yeah, photos and videos and all that, it’s all been handed in and everything else.
So I want to start my own thing up next year think when I can.
Yeah hundred percent, easy as.
Oh definitely, I just like it being out and about not being stuck on the same job everyday and just being outdoors.
It’s going to go straight into my savings for a house deposit. Its really hard at the moment [to save up] so this will go a long way in getting me on my feet.
Thanks heaps guys.
